There’s just a bit too much doom and gloom in the world right now, which is why I’m trying to focus on finding things that bring me happiness.
Since I know we’re all struggling a little bit, I decided that I wanted to start sharing some of the things that have brought me joy throughout the week. Whether they’re material things, or just little anecdotes of my life, I wanted to find a way to bring a little bit more positivity to the world.
1. There’s a new Twilight book coming out.
Like most 15-year-old girls in 2008, I was OBSESSED with Twilight (Team Jacob 4 life). I remember reading the books in Year 9 and saw the first movie in cinemas at least 7 times. So, when the news was announced that Stephenie Meyer was FINALLY releasing Midnight Sun, I was ecstatic.
Yes, I’ve preordered it. Yes, I’m tempted to reread the entire series.
2. The cast of The Office reunited.
John Krasinski, the LOML, has been hosting a good news show online and it’s one of my favourite things right now. So far, they’ve had the original cast of Hamilton surprising a fan and the Jonas Brothers performing at the Some Good News prom. It’s just a joy to watch.
This week though, he did something extra special. He surprised a newly engaged couple with the entire cast of The Office, doing the dance from Jim and Pam’s wedding. Needless to say, I was bawling my eyes out while I was watching it.
3. The Hamilton movie is coming to Disney+!
I’ve been a huge fan of Hamilton for years now. The soundtrack has been my “get hyped” playlist since Summer 2016, and I was even lucky enough to get to see it live on the West End in December 2017!
This week, they announced that the long-awaited Hamilton movie is being released on Disney+ on 3rd July! I’ve wanted to see it performed by the original Broadway cast for what feels like forever, and I’ll finally be able to watch it from the comfort of my own home!
4. The Jonas Brothers released TWO new songs this week.
I’ve been obsessed with the Jonas Brothers since 2009 (my Twitter handle was @catlovesjonas). I saw them live at Newcastle Arena when I was 16, and this year I got to see them again at Manchester Arena, aged 26.
I’ve been loving all of their new music and they just released TWO new songs, X and 5 More Minutes! I’m in heaven, honestly. I’ve had them both on repeat all day.
5. I found my driving licence!
This is totally random, but I lost my driving licence in March and hadn’t gotten around to applying for a new one. No need now though, turns out it had been hidden under my bed this whole time!
What’s made you happy this week? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear it!
